My local fall back. Pure dive bar atmosphere. Never had a problem with service. Prices were cheap even more during happy hours. Beer selection was mixed, never anything over the top or tremendous.... just solid crafts. Never ate here but the do have a menu. Patio is fun during the summer.

Bar, directly across the street from Willoughby Brewing, has some AWESOME happy hour specials, including at one time 2.50 dollar bottles of Brooklyn Black Chocolate stout... Stocks a great variety of IPAís and micro beers, but this place is small and often gets crowded smelly and hot. Look for the patio to be open or the pool table upstairs. cheap patio seating inside can be awkard, but the beer selection is great, theyíve even had Storm King in bottles at previous times.

Rustic pub with "18" drafts and "99" bottles. They always have a few very good draft selections. Good seasonal rotations. The bottle list is good as well. They share the same owner as the next door Ballantine, so you can take advantage of the great Ballantine food while in the more relaxed 1899 atmosphere. Willoughby has a few great beer stops and this is not to be overlooked.

Great location in downtown Willoughby, "the Pub" has 18 beers and a lot more in the bottle. Great happy hour prices. Bellís Two Hearted always on tap along with a couple other staples and a good rotating selection. Bartenders are on top of their game. No food but you can order from the Ballantine (next door) menu and eat it here.

Was here for a party so I was in a "private" room upstairs. There are two bars although all draft taps come from the main bar. Selection was better than I was expecting - though you are not going to find anything super rare you can find taps like Bellís Two Hearted, Ithaca Flower Power, and rotating Great Lakes beers. The bottle list is solid as well - if you ignore the third that is the typical line up (Coors, Miller, etc) it includes a few lambics and Belgians worth the price. Speaking of which I was surprised at the relative value - a bottle of Storm King was only $3.50 on premises which is not nearly as much of a markup as I expected. All told I would rather go to Willoughby just down the street but if tire of their taps this is only three minutes away.
